A CENTRE DEDICATED TO ETHICS AND POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY
CENTRE FOR ETHICS, POLITICS AND SOCIETY
The Centre for Ethics, Politics and Society is the only research centre in Portugal exclusively dedicated to the areas of Political Philosophy and Ethics. The Centre brings together PhD researchers, post-doctoral researchers and other associated researchers in these areas of knowledge.
Members of the Centre work on topics such as distributive justice, human rights, immigration and tolerance, unconditional basic income and property-owning democracy, democracy and the public interest, political rhetoric and populism, anarchism, civic virtues, applied ethics, philosophy of technology, human enhancement, ethics of war, and various issues in the history of moral and political philosophy.
The Centre publishes Ethics, Politics & Society, an open access, peer-reviewed international journal that publishes high-quality contributions in the Centre’s areas of expertise.
The Centre also organises an intensive series of international events, including the Meetings on Ethics and Political Philosophy and the Summer School in Political Philosophy and Public Policy, and hosts a Programme of Research Seminars, aimed at discussing the work of its researchers, as well as conferences presented by guest speakers.
The international panel of the Foundation for Science and Technology that assessed the Centre gave it the classification of “Very Good”.
